Je n’ai jamais vraiment reçu de formation pour effectuer tout le travail que je devais accomplir, ce qui m’a amenée à démissionner après presqu’un an. Pas d’encadrement, d’aide ou de support.
Terminer tôt la fin de semaine
Having worked in retail for a long time, I had much higher expectations from this company especially considering my previous work experience but that wasn’t enough. There are some friendly people and you just need to learn to be polite towards everyone in general and keep your sincerity with people who actually show trust in you and admire you for who you are. Politics is essentially a part of all workplaces in varying capacity but one has to learn to move on quickly from some incidents and just keep doing what they are doing as long as the customers are happy.
Management needs to take diversity training. There are daily comments of stupidity in meetings and men remain dominant. HR are very strict - it’s a helicopter culture - not a trust working from home. Employees work very long hours often through lunch - meetings are endless. The current merger is a mess - a lot of details are outstanding leaving teams with unnecessary stress. Communication is lacking and could reassure employees. Stores are disconnected from head office. There’s no allowance for equipment for at home employees. Even a year on employees are working at kitchen tables - Stapes sells the essentials but doesn’t look after it’s own team.
Salary is competitive, advancement opportunities
Long hours, unreliable management, lack of communication, no working from home support
Well I hope you have a strong back, lots of lifting is in your future at Staples. The pay is ok for what is required of you at this position. Work hard go home get up do it again, just please be ca of your back is tough work consistently carrying 50 pound boxes of copy paper up multiple flights of stairs.
I have been working for Staples for over 15 years! The company has changed in the last 3 years after being purchased by Sycamore. No longer do they care about people! It is all about whether the RVP likes you, she has issues with anyone who has been around 10 years+. Work long hours and not appreciated. The retail managers have not received increase in 2019 or 2020, last year due to poor results and min wage increases this year due to Covid. 2021 will probably be another reason given by HR and Operations. The company needs to give its head a shake as they have been really good at driving away some really good managers over the last couple of years, perhaps that is the goal? If you want to be managed under a microscope and feel stressed out than this is the place for you! They no longer care about people, new philosophy is if you don’t like it leave we can replace you!

Not worth it, support is not here. Will pretend to be there and when it matters they don’t help. Extremely high demands to meet sale goals and zero reward for doing it not even a real pat on the back
Good work life absolutely nothing else
You need to do everything and no one cares or thanks you for going way above and beyond
Staples is good company to work for if you are starting out your career. It is a company driven by processes and results. You will get all the tools needed in order to perform your duties.
Great spirited company, Freindly, you always have support with any and everything you need in and out of work.
You always feel the pressure of having to do produce, Sometimes you feel your best is not good enough
Staples has spent the last several years cutting costs at the expense of quality of life for their employees, especially management. I worked a minimum of 50-60 hours per week, something that is not at all uncommon for most Staples managers. The overtime is unpaid, and no lieu time was given. I worked in a store that operated 16 hours a day with only myself and the general manager, meaning we never worked together. The third management position was intentionally left unfilled by the Divisional Manager, seemingly to reduce operating costs. My manager was unable to observe my performance to provide me with coaching, and I was unable to observe how he performed his job. This created a situation in which I felt unable to grow into a new position with the company. Many of the managers I knew had no work/life balance, and health problems were rampant. In my exit interview, the HR rep I spoke with was completely unsurprised at my reasons for leaving (overwork, mainly) and said that the HR department had been hearing the same thing a lot lately. I was at least the 9th manager in Toronto to quit that year. The work itself might have been okay had anyone been given the resources they needed to succeed. Instead, executive management policies left store management and associates alike feeling stressed, unappreciated, and taken advantage of.
HR won't even talk to you until they have a copy of an up-to-date Driver's Abstract, which is immediately asking for private/personal information before you even have your first chance to ask questions about whether or not you're even interested in the position. Look elsewhere.
Hr, Management, Low Wages, Long Hours
Management are very good,The staff are friendly. you have your busy days,everyone Helps everyone till all the orders are done. The only issue is you don’t know when you finish. Yearly BBQ
You don’t know when you finish
Working with staples is an add to your resume and experience as it is a big company to start with in Canada. I have learnt alot from the team. We are like brothers and sister and everyone one is helping the other to understand the whole process. It is my pleasure to work there.
I worked as a lead hand running a department for 8 years and never promoted even though I was " being groomed". Its easy to remain stagnant in your role. There was no opportunity to grow or advancement. I was happy to leave under the current management.
The store gives only 1 or 2 days a week. They hire a lot of students and give everyone only 5 - 10 h a week. The schedule have to be flexible, no stable work days. This is the hardest - not stable hours and not much. Hard to find another job for other days you never know what day you will be in Staples. Otherwise, management is good
Working at Staples will feel like a chore once you get past training.TRAINING: Training itself, is a lot to take in but the trainer does try to add some fun to it. It is nerve racking the first time you deal with customers and are not 100% sure how to run the systems, but they do have individuals there to help you.After the first part of training is done, you are on the floor taking calls which is pretty straight forward but can get very repetitive.After a few weeks, you go back to training for Print and Marketing (Staples Copy & Print) which is more complicated. You are only able to see very basic information about customers orders. Anything more complex, you will need to reach out to CSHD (Customer Service Help Desk)Once training is done you are somewhat on your own (at least it will feel that way at the start) but the managers and supervisors are there at the start (If they tell you something once remember it, they will get annoyed if you repeat inquiries more than twice)SHIFTS: Beware of shifts sometimes (Hours are 7:30am - 8pm) if you get multiple consecutive shifts, email your manager with the inquiryPAY: Pay is not the greatest (after taxes approx $13.50 - $14.00 an hour) sometimes it does not seem worth it for the volume of calls you may take in a day. Calls at times seem like they do not stop (You WILL feel like you are alone on phones even though management says you are not)WORK/LIFE BALANCE: Is average at best, especially if you have an early shift. Beware, if you have a shift from 11:30am - 8pm, the work life balance combo goes out the window, and all - plus...

En général, la vente au détail ça devient de plus en plus difficile, Staples ne fait pas exception. Question de rentabilité, la pression retombe quotidiennement sur les employés. Les tâches sont très nombreuses et variées et bien que le client reste la priorité, des dizaines de tâches sont laissées allées chaque jour, on ne fait que le plus urgent. Quelqu'un d'autonome, efficace, diplomate saura avancé chez Staples. Chaque magasin a sa saveur, selon son équipe de direction. Solution simple serait de traîner un peu dans un magasin et d'avoir un expérience avec un/une directrice et prendre le pouls de la succursale.
Possibilités d'avancements, On ne s'ennuie jamais
Salaire, Charge de travail (+ en +), Communication, équilibre vie/famille, augmentation annuelle risible
Regardless of how young and fit you are, or how much time you have, don't believe HR when they tell you that you'll only be working 8-hour shifts. Theirs a reason they ask you if you have flexible hours between 6am and 6pm. Unless theirs unforeseen circumstances, you don't return to the depot until your truck is empty, which on average is anywhere between 9-1/2 to 11 hours per day. Add bad weather into the mix and kiss your life goodbye. 50~ish stops per day, which is ridiculous for the amount of heavy lifting involved; manly boxes of paper, sometimes office furniture. Zero work/life balance, except for having weekends off. Starting wage of $17 an hour. Horrible pay and increase structure. Anything less than $20 an hour is less than a living wage. If you're young and naive, knock yourself out. If you're over 25 or have a family, look elsewhere.
Pay, Long-Hours, No Work/Life Balance
I do not feel comfortable leaving a review on this company so here is some filler text to fill this box because the site won't let me continue without doing so.
Un compagnie qui ne paye pas bien ses employés vous améliorer avec le temps mais y a aucune augmentation salariale donc tous le monde part rapidement
The management is helpful, the team is welcoming and works together, working from home is the best experience I have had in my career. Although I do not see much possibility for advancement, I highly recommend working with Staples
